Vikings struggle at plate in tournament losses

Hitting has been a bright spot for the winless South Tahoe High baseball team this spring. But the hits stopped coming during its three games in the Amador Valley Tournament on Wednesday in Pleasanton, Calif.

South Tahoe produced nine totals hits in a 7-1 loss to Amador Valley and a 15-1 defeat to Castro Valley.

“We all slumped at once. We just hit a cold spot that I think we’ll come out of,” said STHS manager Doug Russell. “It’s bound to happen, but it’s unfortunate that it happened on the road just when we wanted to put some stuff together.”

Tim Sprinkles had two of the Vikings’ nine hits.

Russell was pleased with the pitching of Thrace Ramsey in the opener and the relief performance of Carlos Romero in game two.

South Tahoe, 0-14, is tentatively scheduled to play a doubleheader at Wooster on Monday.
